Types of Atlanta Motorcycle Accident Claims We Handle
One type of motorcycle accident claims Piasta Newbern Walker, LLC, handles is driver negligence. If another vehicle caused the accident with your motorcycle, we will go after the negligent driver’s insurance policy. Our Atlanta car accident attorneys have experience handling motorcycle and car collision claims and representing injury victims. This can oftentimes be accomplished outside a formal lawsuit setting. However, we will not hesitate to go toe to toe with the liable insurance company in court to get you what you deserve.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claims
Some motorcycle insurance policies have what is known as supplemental uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage available. If you have purchased this type of coverage and your insurance company will not give you the benefits you are due, our law firm has extensive experience and success in pursuing these types of claims.
Negligent Roadway Design Claims
A negligent roadway design lawsuit may be filed against the state, city, or county alleging that their design of the roadway caused or contributed to your motorcycle accident. Examples of negligent roadway design include:
- Improper signage
- Missing warning signs
- Improper speed limits for the layout of the roadway
- Lack of maintenance
- Poor drainage
Negligent roadway design cases are the most complex and difficult cases to handle. A complete investigation must be performed by an experienced engineer who can determine that the roadway was in fact flawed. The Atlanta motorcycle accident attorneys at Piasta Newbern Walker, LLC, have the experience and expertise necessary to handle these types of lawsuits successfully.
What Is The Statute of Limitations for Motorcycle Accident Claims in Atlanta?
In Georgia, you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a motorcycle accident claim. Failure to file a lawsuit within this time frame will forfeit your right to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages and income, pain and suffering, and other losses.
State and local laws often require injured people to serve a notice of claim before filing a lawsuit against a government or governmental agency. As such, you may have as little as 90 days to provide notice of your intent to bring your Atlanta motorcycle accident claim.
Therefore, it is important to have an experienced Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer on your side from the very beginning of the complicated motorcycle injury claims process. Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Atlanta have years of experience bringing these types of personal injury claims.
